SECTION 21 - HOME TRY-ON
KARAAT offers a simple and convenient seven (7) day home try-on program to help you choose the perfect conflict-free engagement ring and/or wedding band. Simply choose three (3) sample setting styles from our engagement ring collection and we will ship them via PostNord Standard Delivery (allow 2-5 days) to you, along with a pre-paid return shipping label.
We ship Home Try-On packages only in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark at this time. Only one (1) home try-on package allotted per customer/address at a single time. We allow a maximum of one (1) complimentary home try-on order per customer/address.
All samples are made from alloy metal, set with Swarovski crystals, and cannot be customized.
To ensure the rings are returned in the same condition they were received, we will charge your preferred method of payment a 100EUR fee. This payment is used as a guarantee in the event that the sample rings are not returned within the allocated time frame. Providing the home try-on package is returned with all samples in original condition, your 100EUR charge will be refunded as store credit good toward any engagement ring order.
When you use our Home Try-On service, you agree to return all Home Try-On sample settings to us in their original condition on the seventh day of your try-on period, using the prepaid return label and packaging we provide. If the try-on period ends, and any of the sample settings have not been returned, or the settings are returned damaged, no refund will be provided. This also applies to sample settings that are lost or stolen.
In order to avoid a 100EUR charge, your Home Try-On package will need to be postmarked (on its way back to KARAAT) by the seventh full business day after delivery. If your home try-on period ends on a weekend or holiday, just drop the return package to your local PostNord office on the next available business day. While we ask that packages be shipped back to us within the allotted timeline, we understand things come up. If you need a little extra time to decide, no problem, just DM us at Instagram @karaatjewelry or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an alternative ship-back date. We’re available from Monday to Friday from 9AM to 5PM (EET).
If the Home Try-On package is not returned to a drop-off point by the 12th day from the day the package has arrived to a postal service point, an extra charge of 100EUR will apply. After this, an extra 50EUR fee per day will apply. The final charge will be invoiced separately.
While our sample settings accurately represent style, they in no way reflect the final quality or craftsmanship of a KARAAT setting. If you are even slightly impressed with the quality of our alloy samples, we guarantee you'll love the quality, beauty, and craftsmanship of your final ring.
SECTION 22 - JEWELRY RENTAL
Canceling your order
The customer has the right to cancel the order themselves. If the cancellation is made 7 days before the start of the rental period, we will refund the full amount in the form of a gift card. If the order has already been sent, Karaat Jewelry Oy has the right to charge the postage and handling costs incurred at that time. If you want to cancel your order, please contact our customer service first.
Please note that not picking up the order is not cancellation of the order. We charge the postage and handling costs incurred at any given time for orders that have not been picked up within the storage period.
Returning the products at the end of the rental period
When your rental period is over, put the items you rented in their original packaging in which you received them. The package includes a pre-paid return label which you can apply to it. Take the package to your nearest Postnord service point by the deadline which is the last day of your rental period. You can find the deadline for the return in the instructions that came with the delivery. Returns are always free.
The rented items must be returned by the deadline on the end of the rental period. After the end of the rental period a fee of 50EUR (excl. VAT) will be charged for each starting day. If the return is delayed by more than one day and the amount of the delay compensation exceeds the retail price of the product, Karaat Jewelry Oy has the right to charge no more than the retail price of the product.
Right of return
Karaat Jewelry Oy offers its customers a 14-day right of return in accordance with the Finnish Consumer Protection Act. The 14-day return right starts from the day you receive the product.
The 14-day return right only applies to unused items. The item(s) to be returned/claimed must be unused, the jewelry must be returned in its original packaging and the packaging must also be in its original condition. If you want to return or exchange the product you ordered, please always first contact our customer service at email@example.com or by phone +358 45 670 3024.
Keep all documents related to the return until you have received information about the receipt and processing of the return. We pay the refunded amount primarily through the payment service you use. The return processing time is approximately 14 business days.
Please note that not picking up the order is not cancellation of the order. We charge actual postage and handling costs for orders that have not been picked up within the storage period. If you want to cancel the order before your rental period begins, see Canceling your the order.
If the product you ordered is lost or damaged in transit, you must notify Karaat Jewelry Oy's customer service within 1 day.
Damage or non-return of the rented item(s)
If the product is damaged beyond repair during the rental or is left unreturned, Karaat Jewelry Oy has the right to charge the customer the retail price of the product. Complaint situations are always handled on a case-by-case basis.
